While the 2017 local elections are over, there’s a very important race heating up for early next year: the selection of NYC Council Speaker. As in years past, this decision is being made behind closed doors by county bosses with input from the Real Estate Board of NY or REBNY--which has become the most powerful lobby in the city and state. With me to discuss this race and its implications is friend-to-the-show Steve Barrisons, executive vice president & spokesperson of the Small Business Congress-NYC, and Co-chair of the Coalition To Save NYC Small Businesses. Welcome back.
